Below is what TIME Magazine wrote about Meryl:
Streep received a record 17th Oscar nomination and her third win in 2012 for her performance in The Iron Lady. In her acceptance speech, she joked, “When they called my name … I could hear half of America going, ‘Oh, no — her again?’ But whatever.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. Sure, she’s the go-to dramatic actress of our time. But as a screen chameleon who only gets better with age, Streep continues to dazzle and inspire.
